When Spud Webb won the NBA Dunk Contest in 1986, it changed the narrative for short basketball players around the world. For the first time in the history of the NBA, a guard under six feet tall was considered as the best dunker. Now, go ahead 20 years, and his influence can still be seen today. In 2006, the [...]
BIG NEWS, CHARLOTTE! Today, it was announced that the Charlotte Bobcats may not be the Bobcats for much longer, as Michael Jordan and his team has applied to the NBA Board of Governors to change the name back to the Hornets.

He is clearly doing something right because this black-lab baller has some serious handles and a thunderous go-to dunk. Pay attention to the greying muzzle – ring a bell for any other [...]
The Knicks may only be two wins away from making the Eastern Conference Finals, but they’ve been terrible in these Playoffs. Carmelo’s FG% is way down to 39.5%, and their star off the bench J.R.
